Mayors Conference - Seizing the Opportunity of E-Government

Conference posterMayors can learn much from one another, as well as from private sector leaders, about utilizing technology to manage municipalities more effectively and efficiently. As such, this bipartisan conference was restricted to a small group of mayors of cities with populations of 100,000 or more and to a select group of CEOs who have successfully pioneered technological innovations of relevance to local government.

The conference was co-presented by Temple University's Center for Competitive Government,the City of New York, and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). NYC Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and NYSE chairman and CEO Dick Grasso hosted the conference. The Center for Sustainable Communities at Temple University Ambler was the principal underwriter of the conference.

Additional underwriters included Computer Associates International, Enterasys,
PricewaterhouseCoopers Endowment for the Business of Government, and Eastern States Group.

The conference was held in the NYSE Boardroom and New York City's new Emergency Operations Center located in the World Trade Center. In addition, Mayor Giuliani hosted a welcoming reception and dinner at his residence, Gracie Mansion, on Tuesday, June 26.

Invitation to the ConferenceSpeakers included the mayors of New York, Phoenix, Charlotte, Durham and Raleigh, and top executives from the New York Stock Exchange, AOL-Time Warner, Cisco, Computer Associates International, Enterasys and Omnicom. Participants included prominent public and private sector officials. After each presentation there was a discussion among participants and speakers about lessons learned from the presentation.

This collaboration between private and public sector executives will lead to new solutions as we face the challenge of transforming municipal governance in the 21st Century. These innovations will spread far beyond the attendees, as proceedings of the conference will be widely distributed.
